WW: Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum

I just reviewed a book for Ripley's Believe It or Not! Shatter Your Senses!


When I saw that they had a museum in Branson, Missouri we decided to take the boys there. Travis and I went to one in Wisconsin Dells, but the boys had never been to one.

I have to say there museums are so fun, informative, and great for all ages.

Their building is so cool because it's off-kilter. The boys loved the Transformer in front. I just wish I could have captured it without the power lines. Oh well.



Inside they had a lizard hanging from the ceiling:


Art was behind glass. Some of it is really cool. Just as cool, if not better than some art museums.

A sculpture made with beads:



Lots of masks, and they had a display of shrunken heads. There was an i-pad set up to shoot your own head to shrink it.



Do you remember the movie Big with Tom Hanks? Zoltar is the machine that turned him big.


Lauryn Hill made with cassette tapes:


A lion made with rubber tires:


Hulk Smash!



The biggest roll of toilet paper. Don't squeeze the Charmin!



This mask was fun:


They had funny mirrors set up. I think Travis had just as much fun as the boys with this mirror.


The tallest person in history. I thought my Dad was tall. We're all on the same floor that he's on.





Isaak made a new friend!  


Have you been to a Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum?

We were going to go when we were at Wisconsin Dells a few years back, but didn't have enough time. I think it looks like such a fun place to explore!

Wow! I've never been to one and I'm sure they have been in places that I've gone. We'll have to make it a point to visit one sometime! Great photos.

That is so cool. The funny thing is that we have one in San Francisco and I have never been. I might want to go and check it out. Very nice. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful rest of the week.

We went to one in Malaysia a few years back. It was indoors so definitely not as cool as the exterior of this one! Lil Pumpkin had so much fun though.. she's pretty much into queer and interesting stuff haha

Sometimes you just have to wonder where Ripleys gets all that stuff. Maybe you have to wonder about the people who created it as well :)

Ripleys is always fun! My kids love this museum so much and it keeps cracking them when they see something funny and weird..

That lion made with rubber tires is pretty awesome! I've never been to a Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum but would love to someday. That kind of stuff fascinates me.
